Ex-External

Ex-external

I need to block out the world.
Not always, but sometimes
I need to turn off the silence
And blaze a pounding presence
of membrane drumming under earphones,
Bobbing my head to privacy,
Noising my peripherals with imagery
I can ignore into focus.

Taste

Taste
I’ve made a brilliant cup of coffee this morning,
but as it touched my lip,
It devoured my taste for coffee
the moment I took a sip.
